randomosity

- I have finally finished the horrifying first draft of the last Chris/Georgi story! It's twice as long as I hoped it would be and it's probably going to take 6 - 10 hours of editing just to get it beta-worthy but it exists and that's enough for today. ♥

- Next on the list are two non-YOI exchange stories, one for Harumeku, a Prince of Tennis (my forever fandom) exchange, and the other for the Inter-High Exchange (IHX), sports manga/anime in general, which did include YOI but I decided not to offer it because I have enough of a list of my own to work through before SASO starts up again. My beta did tell me I was burnt out and should relax by writing some gratuitous porn, though, so some more YOI will probably sneak in there.

- I recently started playing in a new Pathfinder campaign and it's so great being back to it. Tabletop RPG is my secondary hobby, after fandom, and Pathfinder is my favourite system. (If you're not familiar, the base rules are essentially a fork of D&D 3.5.) My group is experienced and tactically smart but also really into the roleplaying aspect so it's usually the most fun night of the week!

- We're also back to playing more Marvel: Legendary, which is a co-operative deck-building game that's pretty much the most fun non-RPG table game I've ever played. (We had to sleeve all the cards, though, because sometimes when you draw Doctor Octopus and give his card a little kiss, you might get lipgloss on him.) I've actually changed my opinions on some of the characters based on their cards sets. I used to think Namor the Submariner was a pompous asshole but now I think he's a really hot pompous asshole. (Who should totally get back with Sue. Which would free up Reed for Victor.)

- I hope you are all having a great weekend! ♥♥♥ Doing anything fun?

skip 120

So catching up on DW this morning took me to skip 120! I've been writing so much I've just had to keep my head down. (Okay, yapping on Twitter as much as usual.)

I've been trying, trying so hard to knock down the draft of the final Chris/Georgi story and it's still not done because I keep having to stop and work on exchange stories. Also, even though I know what I have to write, I just can't seem to get to the end of it -- it's like when you have a big bowl of salad and no matter how much you eat the bowl never seems to get any emptier. But I have a day and a bit free before I have to start the next exchange story so maybe this time.

This will be the terrible first draft, mind you. Which is pretty much a bag of cold mashed potatoes that I will then have to bash and kick until it's moulded into a breathtaking marble statue. (Part of the process will be removing metaphors like that one.)

Because I find this story so difficult to write, my brain keeps trying to distract me with ideas for less taxing side stories, some of which are useful and good and on the list for later. But then there was this one:

Chris & Georgi Go To Monte Carlo

Chris: *slaps Georgi's ass* Dress up nice because you'll be on the arm of a high roller tonight.

Georgi: The Russian is the high roller, you Swiss geek. You're my arm candy tonight.

Chris: Well, I am prettier than you. But I'm the one who has a system!

Georgi: See? I got some temporary tattoos to look tough!

Chris: If Victor were here, he'd let me be the high roller.

Georgi: If Victor were here, you'd both be my arm candy.

Chris: Could you say that again but into my phone this time?

Georgi: *looks justifiably suspicious*

Chris: I want to record you agreeing to a threesome with Victor.

Georgi: *rolls his eyes* Fine, high roller. But if your system works, I'm expecting some diamonds.

Spoiler: Chris's system did not work.

Fic: The Tango Lesson, YOI, Chris/Yuuri

Turns out my YOI OTP is Chris/pretty much anybody! I'm drowning in WIPs and exchange fic deadlines, but had to get something out for my turn on [livejournal.com profile] writetomyheart. I'd been wanting to write something for [community profile] pbam too, so this did double-duty. The Porn Battle prompts were: dancing, handjobs, blowjobs.

Summary: Pre-canon. Snowed in after a competition, Chris asks Yuuri to teach him the tango.

Yuuri breathes in sharply, though he must have known where they were going, and the flush on his face deepens. He doesn’t speak but his fingers clutch Chris’s arm, holding on tightly like Chris is both the storm and the one who will bring him through it.


Also, I listened to a lot of tango music while I was writing but especially this one: DJ Maksy & Bryson Andres – Glad You Came (YouTube)

Yuri!!! on Ice GPF timeline thoughts/questions/feelings

Working on some fic set closely in the GPF and the timeline seems a little unclear. As I understand it, unlike the events leading up to it, the final usually has a full day off for the men between the short and free programs. For example, the schedule from 2016 [PDF]. But is that necessarily always the case?

From the anime, this is how I understand the timeline:

Have I missed anything? Is this your understanding too? Would you find it jarring for fic to assume the short and free programs happen on consecutive days instead?

Chocolate Box: The Revealening

I wrote four stories in two fandoms; my main assignment, a pinch hit, and two treats. That's the most I've ever done for an exchange!

Foundation
Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov, Yuri!!! on Ice, 2200 words, Explicit
Developing Relationship, Semi-Public Sex, Non-Penetrative Sex, Intercrural Sex
Victor does Yuuri's makeup before competitions.

My main assignment and a look at Yuuri and Victor through a narrow lens. My favourite thing about this story was Yuuri getting progressively bolder. ♥


After-Party
Otabek Altin/Yuri Plisetsky, Yuri!!! on Ice, 2700 words, Teen And Up Audiences
Developing Relationship, First Kiss, Kissing, Cranky Yurio
After the Grand Prix Final Banquet, there is an after-party. But no one will let Yuri in.

The pinch-hit, some sweet OtaYuri. There's only a glimpse but my favourite thing in this story was Phichit with glitter on his face. He would rock that look.


Oh My God, Finally
Phichit Chulanont/Christophe Giacometti, Yuri!!! on Ice, 1700 words, Explicit
Established Katsuki Yuuri/Victor Nikiforov, Humor, Drunk Sex, Hand Jobs, Blow Jobs
At the GPF post-banquet after-party, Chris and Phichit do a little roleplay to mock Victor and Yuuri and end up suprising themselves.

My first proper humour story in YOI; I don't know why it took me so long. Two after-party stories in the same exchange and both in Chris's room -- but it's such a fun set-up. My favourite thing has to be Phichit pretending to be Yuuri. He's very good at it.


Heart, Candy, Kiss
Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei, Haikyuu!!, 1000 words, Teen And Up Audiences
Established Relationship, Teasing, Humor, Let's face it they're both assholes
Tsukki's texts to Kuroo become suspiciously frequent and romantic.

Oh, Haikyuu!! I don't know why I haven't written a million stories for you. This was so fun to work on, these two have such a snarky relationship. My favourite thing was, of course, Bokuto. In fact, I kind of want to go back and edit Bokuto into both the YOI party stories because he would make everything even better. Also, I learned how to make a work skin to show the emojis properly.


I received three stories in two fandoms! The first one here was a late treat which was such a delightful suprise! All rare pairs, which is so awesome. I loved these all. ♥

burning with desire for a kiss by claudine
Mila Babicheva/Sara Crispino, Yuri!!! on Ice, 800 words, Explicit
Friends With Benefits, Canon Compliant, First Time, Slice of Life with Sex

But Not For Me by havisham
Christophe Giacometti/Victor Nikiforov, Yuri!!! on Ice, 2800 words, Explicit
Pre-Canon, Friends With Benefits, Angst and Porn, significant haircuts
Chris won gold, once.

Stuck With Me by Marks
Tezuka Kunimitsu & Inui Sadaharu, Prince of Tennis, 300 words, General Audiences
Inui sat down on the bench. He’d considered the odds and decided that Tezuka probably wouldn’t get up.

rambles

I'm in that stage with my WIP where it's not so much a WIP as a jumble of notes and despair. The problem with "just write X words per day" is that it doesn't really leave time for this part of the process: the ruminating and complaining and taking walks and creating the fucking outline, which, for character-driven stories, is so difficult for me.

Do you have a method for kick-starting that process? Just barf some words onto the page and see how that goes? Force a friend to listen to you ramble? Outline the emotional beats you need to hit and then fit the canon/made-up scenes around that? (That's not a bad idea, actually.) Procrastinate on social media?

In other news, I haven't been reading a lot of fic in YOI so far -- when I'm writing a lot in a fandom, especially when it's new, I tend not to read very much -- but I read almost everything in Choc Box (except some threesomes and a crossover) and it was great! So one of my goals is to do a bunch more reading, especially for rare pairs. But I may need to wait until this WIP is drafted to jump on that.

Another goal is to write something for YOI that's more plot-driven and light-hearted. YOI came along at a time when I was longing for a fandom with adult characters with sexual histories that I could write dirty porn about without having to age characters up first. (Not aging up for purity reasons; more wanting the characters to be sexually experienced.) And I have SO enjoyed that! But it's pretty far from my usual sports-series fare. (That said, the Idea Jar is far too full of stuff that makes me go, "Ooh, everyone is going to hate that but I'm going to write it anyhow.")

How do you pick which ideas to write (or draw or vid or ...)?

Fic: Off the Ice, YOI, Chris/Victor

I was trying to get this posted for Chris's birthday on Feb 14 but did not finish in time, alas! I've been thinking about this premise for quite a while and finally got on to it. Also, as I said on Twitter, my YOI fic seems to be 95% guys messily banging in hotel rooms and it’s making want to get a hazmat suit for my next biz trip.

Now to get my head into the game for the last Chris/Georgi instalment. If I disappear for a while, that's why. I write that pairing better when I'm basically just obsessing over it.

YOI and Word of God

A few things to keep in mind, about Yuri!!! on ICE and about any canon.

Word of God is not canon. What's on the screen or on the page is canon. Word of God is supplementary material that you are welcome to incorporate but you are not obliged to. We do not live in a universe where Greedo shot first!

Actions speak louder than words. People don't always say what they mean. They don't always know what they mean. When they try to explain their motivations after the fact, they may get them wrong or they may not be able to admit their true motivations. That applies whether you're taking a Doylist or Watsonion point of view.

Just because Kubo or Yuuri says, "hey, looking at these matching gold rings that canonically engaged couple JJ & Isabella are wearing makes me want to go buy a matching set of expensive gold wedding bands to wear on our wedding band fingers and exhange them with Victor on the steps of a church -- it will be just like that time my high school handicrafts club sewed matching bookmarks for everyone!" doesn't mean that was actually Yuuri's motivation, even if Yuuri tells himself it is. Or Kubo tells us it is.

People can't always articulate their feelings. One anime scene that strongly impressed me in years gone by was in Nana. Early on, Hachi and her boyfriend are away on a trip together. She asks him to tell her that he loves her. At first he says, "Don't ask a Japanese man to say that!" But he can tell she really wants to hear it, so he starts psyching himself up to it: I'm an American. My name is Michael. But he still can't say it and in the end, Hachi says it's okay, she heard him say it in her heart.

Obviously, not everyone will have that much trouble speaking about their feelings, but it's something to keep in mind.

Your interpretation is valid. I can interpret Yuuri and Victor's relationship in a lot of different ways and I really love that. You do you.

Personally, you will never convince me that Otabek is a DJ.

Fic: Blind Alley, ACCA, Nino/Jean

So, this happened after all. My reward for finishing my Choc Box fic and also for suffering through a cold the last few days. This is only the 9th story in this fandom on AO3 but at least it's not a rare pair!

Res Gestae

✔ Finished & uploaded Choc Box fic(s)

✔ Caught up on AO3 comments

✔ Avoided dropping all my YOI & tenipuri WIPs to write ACCA porn (believe me, this is an actual accomplishment, at least this week!)

✔ Started making notes on the next Chris/Georgi instalment; should be the end of the narrative arc and I'm going to be both sad and relieved to be done. I've had the ending in mind for a while but now I have to work out how to get them there. Also, do more canon review. Chris at the GPF really kills me, I feel so sad for him. And when Victor says he's returning to skating, I can't help but feel deeply sad for Georgi as well. *kicks Victor in the shin*

✔ Started thinking maybe my potential exchange commitments for February and March are a bit much! But I really want to do all of them, so I don't know. "Moderation in all things" is a lesson I've never been able to internalize.


Res Not So Gestae

𝙓 Did not catch up on LJ/DW comments, but soon, soon.

𝙓 Various life chores still undone, but that's chronic.

𝙓 Gave up on a Choc Box treat I hoped to write based on realizing I needed to get on with other WIPs.

𝙓 Did not get any back catalogue AO3 archiving done. To be honest, it's mostly that I don't want to spam people who have subbed to my updates with X-Files fic I wrote 18 years ago. If there's a way to add back-dated fic without triggering update emails, I would love to know what it is.


In other news, I hope you're all having/have had a great weekend!

January writing

Just did my check-in for [community profile] getyourwordsout: 16,039 words for the year to date, which is more than double what I need for my goal. (I'm trying to front-load my total to allow for slumps later on.) That's a lot of words for me, so I'm feeling pretty good!

One of my goals for writing this year is to be more wordy. That's a bit odd -- I think people are usually striving for the opposite -- but I generally have a fairly cut-down prose style that can be, well, inaccessible. A beta charitably told me it "requires close reading". I'm trying to "tell" a little more than I do now, at least most of the time.

I also feel like a lot of my work in the last six months has been fairly downbeat. Not sad, necessarily, but with a more sober mood. I'm trying to get back to a breezier mood and plottier stories for a while.

What are your current writing goals? Wordcount? Stylistic?

PSA

When working on fic for one sports series, do not watch an episode from another while on your break. Or you may end up saying, "Yuuri and Victor don't need any more help from me to be in love. These volleyball dorks, on the other hand..."

Kageyama grabbing Hinata's collar and saying 'Nice cover'

Still catching up with S3. This is from E06, which was so intense! Like I said on Twitter, I was shipping Tsukki/Kageyama up til the last moment, when the KageHina was so strong it became a black hole that sucked in every other pairing, including pairings from every other sports series. I just managed to save Inui/Kaidoh from crossing the event horizon but everything else was lost.

So, rings

We see matching rings three times in Yuri!!! on Ice, which I thought was cool.

First is during Georgi's Free Skate in episode 7, when he's thinking about Anya. There's a photo on her Instagram of matching rings with her new guy.
